Did Trump Know he was Putting Bannon on the NSC?

Talk about burying the lede.  People did grasp this sort of cryptic paragraph out of the entire mind boggling article in the NY Times gleaned from the insights of dozens of staffers and start asking questions.  Yes, they are stumbling, literally groping in the dark of a minimally staffed WH, but really?

Trump and Staff Rethink Tactics after Stumbles

Mr. Priebus bristles at the perception that he occupies a diminished perch in the West Wing pecking order compared with previous chiefs. But for the moment, Mr. Bannon remains the president’s dominant adviser, despite Mr. Trump’s anger that he was not fully briefed on details of the executive order he signed giving his chief strategist a seat on the National Security Council, a greater source of frustration to the president than the fallout from the travel ban.

Um, hold on, excuse me… um, are you saying that Trump signed the Executive Order without reading it?  Can you talk about this a little more?

I expect this will be on the menu at Melissa McCarthy’s Sean Spicer’s Monday briefing.

Everybody may latch onto a different hauntingly scary aspect of this article.  I connected with the ending.

With most of his belongings in New York, the only family picture on the shelf behind Mr. Trump’s desk is a small black-and-white photograph of that boss, Frederick Christ Trump.

The only picture he values enough to have with him all the time is that of his father.  How is he not in therapy?
